GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Stronger than Sin by Caridad Pinero

Description

Dr. Liliana Carrera nearly lost her life to Wardwell scientists. She won't let them harm other innocent victims, like her new patient, Jesse Bradford. The former pro athlete had the best hands in the NFL . . . until an injury forced him to undergo Wardwell's experimental gene therapy. Now Jesse's gorgeous body is superhuman-but his strength comes at a price.

With Wardwell threatening his family, Jesse can't tell Liliana all he knows. Yet he can't resist her compassion . . . or her healing, erotic touch. As their passion flares, Jesse's body becomes dangerous and volatile. For evil men are plotting to change the face of humanity-and will destroy whoever stands in their way.

From the Author

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the marvelous reception you gave to Sins of the Flesh. Your many letters and reviews were truly appreciated and I hope you will enjoy the next book - Stronger Than Sin - even more.

When Mick's sister, Dr. Liliana Carrera, walked onto the scene in the first book, I knew she had to get her own story. Her caring, loyalty to her brother and inner strength made her a special character. I had no doubt that a story where Liliana was the heroine would be emotionally compelling and filled with passion.  Such an intense and determined heroine demanded not only a sexy hero, but a strong one.

Jesse Bradford immediately came to mind. Inspired by the many sexy surfer types I encounter on my walks along the beach, Jesse was born and bred on the Jersey Shore. A former football player who had to leave the game he loves due to a crippling bone disease, he is a man who has lost his way, but is honorable, caring and compassionate. Jesse just needs to meet the right woman to guide him back to the right path in his life.

I fell in love with Jesse and Liliana and hope you will as well.  I'm also very happy to say that the SINS series will continue as the expanded SIN HUNTER series with The Lost (August 2011) and The Claimed (Spring 2012).

To celebrate the release of Stronger Than Sin when it hits shelves on October 26th, I'm having the ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH? party and contest.  Visit caridad.com to find out how you can possibly win a Sony E-reader, $25 gift card or an assortment of other goodies!  We'll also be having some other surprises for you, including special pricing on SINS OF THE FLESH e-book.

Thank you for your support.

 MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT
I am so sad I didn't read the first book in this series,  Sins of the Flesh, since I fell in love with the characters and writing style of Caridad Pinero.  I don't think that I was completely lost though because the first chapter brought me up to date on the details.  This one can really stand alone as far as plot goes.  I picked right up on the action and pretty much read this one straight through.  I think this is more urban fantasy than paranormal since ex football player, Jesse is infected with a mutated gene from a mad scientist at Wardwell.  Lilianna is a doctor looking to help cure her sister in law, infected with genes also. 

Again, I am trying not to give away too much plot here.There is plenty of action and the characters are nicely drawn.  I have read a few of Pinero's vampire romances and these will not disappoint if you are looking to fill in those hot stops. I have enjoyed all of her books.

  1. What an interesting book! I thought it was interesting that Cardiad was born in Cuba and helped launch a Latino book line with Kensington early in her career.
